I am posting this post in reguards to a comment the person calling themselves "Praying" it almost sounds like you have a different set of rules when it comes to slandering someone. The reason I am saying this you flat out called the victim a liar in one of your post. I can say this, I know the family of this victim very well, and they don't take to kindly to calling her a liar, the way that it sounds you are saying some of us is trying to slander John Price, but you turn around and call her a liar, it sounds like you need to practice what you preach whomever you are. Where have you been who ever you are? The justice system does not and cannot arrest someone and put them in jail without the evidence being there, we all know that. If you are praying the way you say you are you would not be so quick to judge this young lady and flat out call her a liar. Do you have evidence that she is lieing, if so you may want to get it ready because you may find yourself in court for slander. I'm just saying

Was Debbie his "daughter"? How does Debbies husband and 2 daughters feel about John at this point? Also, the girls mother everyone keeps talking about, does she still go to church there? As I mentioned earlier, I have no way of knowing the truth about this matter, BUT,I know him, and I absolutely have no confidence in the man, and I use man to be nice, real men treat women and everyone with respect!!

I am so glad that this young lady has family and friends taking up for her. I think of her often. You know that if the mother is supposedly still taking up for him after everything that has come out, well then you can only imagine how she possibly would have taken up for him during that time. Of course the girl would have been intimidated. No one wants to loose their family especially their mother. I can see how this could have happened. It happens a lot of the times when there is someone in a position of authority. I just hope that anyone else that has any information will call the District Attorney's office and let them know what they know. This young woman has started her healing process. I know it does not feel like it at times but in the long run she will be so much better off. No matter what the outcome is she will know in her heart that she did the right thing. That is something no one can take away from her, not even a mother or a preacher. JMO

I guess everyone has seen his pic in the paper for Pastor appreciation day, AMAZING!!!!Maybe he treats his church members better than the rest of the world, as I mentioned earlier, you would NEVER find me on here discussing a true man of God, but I have seen his ways and actions, and I can honestly say thas not how a man of God acts!

Debbie was just a foster daughter. Linda is the mother of the victim, nicole. Debbies husband was a deacon in the church but left when all this started coming out and also debbies daughter hannah was a teacher there at school and also left at same time.Debbies other daughter was also in the church and her daughter was in the school but watever went on they all pulled out of the church and the school.

Oh yeah! That's right, you all don't like things talked about and brought out for people to see. No, No. You want everything kept in the dark with the lights off. Behind closed doors, where no one knows. How dare anyone discuss anything. They just might figure out what went on if it is brought out into the light. We can see better in the light.
